Faculty Fellows Program

Through the Civic Engagement Faculty Fellows program, the Office of Civic Engagement prepares Rutgers–Camden faculty members to design and implement high-quality Engaged Civic Learning courses.

Faculty Fellows Program

The core of the program is a two-day institute in which Fellows learn about the pedagogy of engagement and begin designing or redesigning courses. Two follow-up sessions are conducted in the spring semester to review syllabi and plan for implementation of Civic Learning courses. 

Participation and Eligibility

The program is open to faculty in all career tracks, including tenure track, academic professionals, outreach faculty, clinical faculty, and more. Participation is encouraged by all faculty members, from those with little or no prior experience in engaged civic learning to those with experience who may want to take a leadership role in advancing civic engagement initiatives on campus.


Applications for the 2023 cohort of faculty fellows are not yet available. Please check back at a later date.

Faculty Support Services

The Office of Civic Engagement offers a number of services to support faculty in their efforts to engage communities through teaching, research, and service activities. Our staff assists faculty in the development, implementation, and assessment of engaged civic teaching and research and provides opportunities for recognition of these efforts through ECL course designation, conference participation and publication, and through the annual Chancellor’s Awards for Civic Engagement.
